Manchester City vs Sheffield United - Ederson missing for City against Sheffield United

Manchester City will be without goalkeeper Ederson through suspension against Sheffield United after he was sent off in their last-gasp defeat at Wolves.

Claudio Bravo is set to deputise in goal while Sergio Aguero should feature again after making his first start in five weeks at Molineux, only to be taken off following Ederson’s red card.

Gabriel Jesus missed the Wolves game through illness, while playmaker David Silva (leg) and defender John Stones (hamstring) are out, with centre-back Aymeric Laporte and winger Leroy Sane (both knee) long-term absentees.

Blades boss Chris Wilder could freshen up his team for the trip to the Etihad Stadium.

Wilder is monitoring a couple of injured players, although he refused to name those nursing knocks, ahead of Sunday and admitted after the draw with Watford on Boxing Day that some fresh legs might be needed in midfield or in attack.

The likes of Billy Sharp, Lys Mousset, Callum Robinson, Luke Freeman and Mo Besic are all options.

Man City provisional squad: Bravo, Cancelo, Walker, Otamendi, Fernandinho, Garcia, Zinchenko, Mendy, Angelino, Rodri, Gundogan, De Bruyne, B Silva, Mahrez, Sterling, Foden, Jesus, Aguero.

Sheffield United provisional squad: Henderson, Egan, O’Connell, Basham, Baldock, Norwood, Stevens, Lundstram, Morrison, Fleck, McGoldrick, Mousset, Robinson, Freeman, McBurnie, Moore, Sharp, Jagielka, Besic.
